"Our client uses 2N® Net Audio Decoder in the holiday resort for broadcasting background music over their preinstalled analogue facilites. The music is broadcast from a central point to 20 different remote sites. The 2N solution also allows the remote control and maintenance of the complete solution over the IP network."
"Audio over IP was previously an unknown area for Edwards Sound. Initial hesitation was cast aside after a hands on demo and our first few installations taught us a lot more about the 2N product and its many features. We have been able to solve a lot of problems for our customers with 2N that previously would have been too expensive or simply not possible with existing 100v technology. The product range offers a solution to every problem and we are excited about working with 2N into the future."
"Pinehill Primary School came to Edwards Sound with a common problem - their 40 year old Soundcraft PA system was broken beyond repair and needed a replacing. They had heard about the benefits of audio over IP and we're excited about the opportunities it could offer. The scalability, zonal control and ease of installation made the 2N system the perfect solution."
"Received the goods last week. This stuff is awesome!! Audio over IP has come a long way since I last bought devices 4 years ago."

Customer Success Stories
IP Audio System for West Midland Safari Park
To improve communication with its customers, West Midland Safari park wanted to combine its existing public address systems into one centralised audio system. West Midland Safari park was unable to run any new cabling for this project and wanted a solution that would work over their existing IP Network.

"We contacted ITM-Components with a brief to supply equipment that would enable us to broadcast messages and background music around the Park which was controlled from a central location. The 2N system we agreed upon has achieved exactly what we asked for and we are extremely pleased with the result. Throughout the entire project we have received excellent service from ITM-Components."
